        Histoire de la conqueste du Mexique ou de la Nouvelle Espagne par Fernand Cortez

      Paris: Chez Henry Charpentier, 1704. Third French edition. Contemporary mottled calf, five raised bands, spine labels, compartments decorated in gilt, armorial gilt emboss on all boards. A very good copy, spines quite rubbed with a few small splits at the upper joints, closed tear to i5, one plate slightly worn at top edge, minor marginal foxing, a few owner's marks, bookseller's label on pastedowns. 12mo. Illus. with 2 maps and 12 further plates, most folding, head and tail pieces. Translation of Cortez: 'Historia de la conquista de Mexico' which was originally printed in Madrid in 1684, with the first French translation by S. de Broë, seigneur de Citry et de La Guette, following in 1691. This issue of the third French edition of 1704 is not recorded in any of the standard bibliographies including European Americana, Medina BHA, Palau, Sabin, nor Arocena, in his "Antonio de Solis. Cronista Indiano. Estudio sobre las formas historiográficas del Barroco," though he does mention Carpentier's 1714 printing. The John Carter Brown Library notes there were four identical printings in 1704: one by Jean & Michel Guignard, one by la Compagnie des Libraires, another by Charles Osmont, and another by Pierre Auboüin "all editions have same sheets, plates, and typography with reissued title pages." But they do not record this one, which is also identical. Includes all plates: 1. [Map] Mer Pacifique; 2. Rivière de Panuco autrement Rio de Canoas; 3. Isle de Cuba Port St. Jacques; 4. Vaisseaux de Cortez désagréés et échoués par ses ordres; 5. [Map] Environs du Lac de Mexique; 6. A. Tezcuco. B. La chaussée principale. C. Quitlavaca. D. Iztacpalapa. E. Mexico. F. Aqueduc. G.

Hawkins, who dedicates his work to Thomas Pilkington, Lord Mayor of the City of London, writes in the Epistle to the reader that "The paths that lead to the practice of Merchants Accompts are rough and crooked, and though many Authors have very accurately endeavoured to conduct the industrious through those Meanders, yet very few have hitherto arrived at their intended perfection, but this Clavis I hope contains such plain Directions, as without any elaborate pains; (like a Clew) may guide the industrious Student through most of those Inticacies.

      The Hague: Chez les Freres l'Honore, 1704.. Two volumes. [18],280; 222,[18]pp. plus twenty-six plates (five folding). Contemporary speckled calf, spines gilt with leather labels. Corners bumped. Contemporary bookplate on front pastedown of first volume. Very good to near fine. Second edition. Howes describes this as "another edition, re-set in larger type." Lahontan's narrative is a curious blending of fact and fantasy, to be honored in regard to his account of his travels in the Great Lakes region, but to be accompanied by tongue placed amply in cheek in regard to his claims to have journeyed west of the Mississippi, which Howes states have the veracity of "the legends of the sea serpent." Contains "A Short Dictionary of the most Universal Language of the Savages," as well as some specimens of the Huron dialect. It remains a classic voyage, partially imaginary, by a man "of more than ordinary learning and intelligence" (Sabin). HOWES L25. CLARK I:111. PILLING, ALGONQUIAN 293. MICHIGAN RARITIES 6.

      Printed for J. Robinson and B. Aylmer 1704 - with an engraved portrait frontispiece by R. White, browned, fornt inner hinge strained and frontispiece attached only to fly-leaf, pp. 168 (including frontispiece), 12mo, original calf, worn at extremities, small patches of surface loss on lower cover where the leather has been torn, sound These two discourses were first published, without the combined title, in 1674, following the author’s death at about the age of 40. ESTC has two entries for a 1687 edition, one specifically Second Edition (Inverpeffray only; the other St. John’s College, Oxford only - Pearce’s college), but they appear to be the same: no 1687 edition is in Wing. Of the present edition ESTC records 3 copies in the UK and 1 in the US (Folger). Pearse was an ejected minister.A rather charming contemporary inscription is on the flyleaf: ‘Favour is deceitful and Buty [sic] is vain but a Woman that feareth the Lord she shall be praised.

        La Ville de Florence

      Amsterdam: Pierre Mortier, 1704. unbound. Map. Copper plate engraving with original hand coloring. Image measures 19.5" x 33.5". This beautifully detailed town plan of Florence depicts the city and its surroundings from above. The Duomo stands out prominently at the center of the map, and surrounding buildings and sites are rendered in profile with equal care. The Arno river cuts diagonally across the map, adding to the dynamism created by the countryside's farmland and rolling hills. The town's star-shaped fort, known as the Fortress da Basso or Fortress of San Giovanni Battista, is prominent at the left edge of the map. A decorative cartouche of two cherubs holding a crowned shield in the lower left balances out the fort, making for a lovely composition. At the bottom is a key of approximately 250 locations of interest. The map was published in Mortier's re-issue of Blaeu's Townbook of Italy. It is in good condition and has been mounted on a board. Pierre Mortier (1661-1711) was a French cartographer, engraver, and print seller who worked in Amsterdam. He used advanced Dutch printing methods to produce high quality editions of contemporary French maps by cartographers such as De L'Isle, Sanson, Jaillot, de Fer and De Wit. His greatest feat was the nautical atlas "Le Neptune Francois." This plan is a beautiful example of his work.

Edinburgh: Printed by the Heirs and Successors of Andrew Anderson, 1704. [viii], 295 pp. 12mo. (3" x 5"). Contemporary sheep, blind rules to boards, raised bands to spine. Rubbing to extremities with some wear to spine ends and corners, a few scuffs to boards, binding slightly cocked, hinges cracked but secure, front free endpaper lacking, margins trimmed closely with no loss to text. "By Sir George Mackenzie of Rosenhaugh" in fine early hand to title page. Offsetting to margins of title page and final leaf, interior otherwise clean. An appealing copy of a scarce title. * Third (and final) edition. First published in 1672, Mackenzie's "remarkable" collection of 18 pleadings is prefaced by "The Author's Reflections Upon These Pleadings." Most examples have a brief heading that indicates its significance, such as "How Fury and Lucid Intervals May be Proven." Among this group is a pleading "For Maevia, Accused of Witchcraft" and "For Titius, Accused Before the Secret Council for Beating His Wife." Mackenzie was Lord Advocate during the reigns of Charles II and James II. Best known for his role in the persecution of Scottish Presbyterians, which earned him the nickname "Bloody MacKenzie," he was an important jurist, scholar and author, and the founder of the Advocates Library, which is now part of the National Library of Scotland.

       Four early 18th century medical works bound in one volume, the most important of which is the 2nd edition of Exercitationum anatomico-chirurgicarum by the celebrated Dutch anatomist and surgeon Govard Bidloo.  Expanded from the first edition, this work is illustrated with sixteen handsome copper-engraved plates.  The first edition of 1704 was illustrated with only seven. Exercitationum is a "collection of ten anatomical and surgical essays by the celebrated Leyden anatomist. In the two essays on the nerves Bidloo maintains that the nerves do not contain fluid but are rather a mass of fibers. In the seventh essay, De oculo purulento (p. 73-82), the treatment for hypopyon is described" (Bernard Becker Collection in Ophthalmology, 49). CONDITION & DETAILS: Leiden: Jordanum Luchtmans 4to. 7.75 by 6 inches. Ex-libris from the Bellingham Medical Institute, but bearing only the very light ghosting of 2 numbers on the spine.  Bidloo: 3 parts in 1: [viii], 128, [4], [129]-216 pp, sixteen engraved plates; [47] pages. Muys: 100, [4] pages. Folding table. Gorter: [16], 246, [plate], 1 pages. ILLUSTRATION: The Bidloo is illustrated with sixteen copper-engraved plates, overall in very good condition. All of the plates show a very faded library stamp, but on most of the plates it is barely noticeable. See scanned images. The Gorter is illustrated with one copper-engraved plate and also has a very faded library stamp on the plate. BINDING: Early burgundy 20th century library cloth (see ex-libris note above). Front board is detached. Text block is sturdy. INTERIOR: All 4 works are complete. Title page of Gorter is lightly soiled at margins. Overall, the text of all three works is clean and in very good condition.

Black and white copper plate engraved map with hand coloring notating borders and urban areas. This chart, retrieved from Guillaume Delisles World Atlas, one of his two most noted works, depicts Souabe Septentrionale, or Northern "Swabia," one of the four original provinces of Germany, covering the territory which later split into the French province of Alsace, the German principalities of Baden and Württemberg, and most of northern Switzerland. Title is top center, bordered by scales. All relevant cities, villages and landmarks are noted and labeled. Sheet is sturdy and unmarked. Text is clear and legible. Bright, crisp lines. Vertical crease down center of chart from atlas extraction.DeLisle is important as the first "scientific" cartographer who incorporated the most current information on exploration and topography into his maps.

This chart provides an excellent example of his early work. Overall, a superior copy of this original map in exceptional condition. Please feel free to view our photographs of this rare piece.

        La Mer Mediterranee Divisee En Mer De Levant Et De Poinantg Subdivisees En Leur Princpales Parties Our Mare

      Paris, 1704. Map. Very Good. Paris, 1692. 86.4 x 55.9 cm. Framed. Hand-colored copper-plate engraved chart of the Mediterranean Sea and surrounding regions. Title across top outside of frame. Detailed cartouche in lower left corner containing publishing information. Scale in upper left corner. Political boundaries have been hand-colored. Clean, unmarked sheet with minimal toning. Vertical crease down center of map from atlas extraction. Colors remain clear and bright. Lines are crisp and sharp.Alexis Hubert Jaillot followed his predecessor Nicholas Sanson in ushering in the great age of French Cartography in the late 17 and 18th centry. Following the disastrous fire that destroyed the studio of Johannes and Cornelius Blaeu, the publishing center of the cartographic world gradually transitioned from Amsterdam to Paris. Though trained as a sculptor, a lucrative marriage led Jaillot to inherit a large map and print publishing firm. Upon Sansons death, Jaillot negotiated with his heirs for the rights to republish many of his works. Access to Sansons plates allowed Jaillot to be prolific, requiring only minimal modifications to the initial works. As a traditional artist, Jaillots maps were widely admired for their elaborate and meaningful title cartouches.The following map is a third printing, the first being published in 1692, then in 1693. The atlas is unknown. The classical influence can be noted in the ornately decorated cartouche in the bottom of the frame. Please feel free to view our photographs of this piece.

Opusculum non minus curiosum, quàm fructuosum, argumentis tam sacris, quàm profanis, & à naturE lumine petitis stabilitum. In gratiam Erroneorum spirituum : quorum Principium, Oblivio Dei: Medium vita scelerata: Finis Gehenna

      Vienna: K¸rner, 1704. (EMBLEM BOOK) Second (?) edition (first published in Vienna, 1676). 12mo. Frontispiece and 7 engraved emblematic plates by Franz-Ambros (or Christoph) Dietel. [20], 240 pp. Text in Latin. Contemporary sheep, worn, small vertical tear at top of spine, but binding sound, first plate with small chip at outer edge (not affecting image), three small wormholes through first two leaves (reduced to one small hole through the next few), generally quite clean and crisp internally, with only occasional minor spotting. OCLC (no copies of the 1704 edition) . An extremely rare and curious emblem book, with the text in the form of seven dialogues between Vir Politicus and Theologicus by the Hungarian Jesuit theologian Johann Raicsani (or Janos Rajcsanyi). The dialogues concern (1) The Existence of God; (2) Divine Providence; (3) Fate; (4) Predestination and Divine Prescience; (5) Immortality of the Soul; (6) On Gehenna; and (7) Resurrection of the Dead. Along with a frontispiece, each dialogue is preceded by an emblematic engraving by the Viennese artist/engraver Franz-Ambros Dietel (d. 1737?). They are extraordinary, and frequently visionary, pictorial representations of the substance of each of the dialogues. The frontispiece is signed "A. Dietel fecit" and others simply "D." Dietel and his brother Christoph, sons of Stephan Dietel, were engravers residing in Vienna during the early 18th-century. The plates depart from the usual format of the emblem book in that there is no motto; but the symbolic content of the images, each with an accompanying verse from the Vulgate, places it squarely in the tradition. Evidently Raicsani's text was first published in Vienna in 1676; this appears to be the second Vienna edition (possibly preceded by a 1700 edition printed in Passau - the date is uncertain); and reprints appear as late as 1757. It is not at all clear whether the Dietel plates appeared in the 1686 edition. As Franz-Ambros' birth is frequently given as 1682, it may be that the father contributed to the first edition, and the brothers to the 1704 edition. The fact is, all editions are rare: we can locate no copy of any edition in the united states; only one copy (the Passau edition, at Oxford) in the British Isles; and only two copies anywhere (Bavaria State Library and Austrian National Library) of this 1704 edition

Fourth edition. This was the final edition which Newton revised.

His set of “queries” (the complete 31, up from 16 in the original edition of 1704) on the nature of matter was considered to be the most important feature of the Opticks and had a profound influence on scientific thought.&
